Suffering from diabetes. Taking Olglimide-M-2, not available, prescribed GlimiSave M2. Safe to take?

I am an xxxxx and am suffering from Diabetes since 8 years and I am controlling it by taking Olglimide-M-2. As my tablets got over, I went to the Pharmacy to buy Olglimide-M-2, but they gave me GlimiSave M2 as Olglimide-M-2 is not available. They said it is same. Please advise whether I should take GlimiSave M2 in place of Olglimide-M-2. Thanks.
